Heaven [SFM] by argodaemon Heaven [SFM] by argodaemon
Felt like making a picture, so I did. :P Wanted to see if I could texture a panel instead of green-screening so I could use volumetrics. Seemed to work pretty nicely.

The tail and mane are set to ignore lighting so that they would stay bright and colorful. Don't know if I am quite happy with the position of the front mane, but ah well. Was originally going to be a silhouette, but changed my mind and added some rim lighting.

I'm a sucker for exceptional lighting effects, and this definitely qualifies (especially with the rim lighting).  Awesome job.

Now, when you say you "textured a panel"...is the mare-in-the-moon textured onto a sphere in a space map, or is the whole moon/space backdrop textured onto a random rectangular panel propped up somewhere on 2Fort, or is it some other setup entirely?

No worries if you're keeping stuff proprietary, just curious.

I hate proprietary >.<.  It is a big square panel that I just replaced the texture on.

Watch this for an example: www.youtube.com/watch?feature=...

Cool!  A lot of tutorial packed into those six-odd minutes, was definitely worth the watch (and the split-second AO cartoony Dash at ~5:30 worked surprisingly well with the backdrop style, too :))

How do you set piece to ignore lightning?

In the .vmt file, you can either set the file to "UnLitGeneric" (developer.valvesoftware.com/wi... ) or add "selfillum" (developer.valvesoftware.com/wi... ).  I tend to use selfillum most often.
